How About
by Melvins



I remember how I used to walk up and down the streets
Of the city of New Orleans, bound by drugs, bound by alcohol
Committing the different acts of sin, living beneath my privilege
Doing things that were contrary to God as well as the law
But after all the things that I did
And after all the sins that I committed
One day I heard about Jesus
I'm just like the woman that heard about Jesus
Coming through the city of Jericho, and she had a problem
But I had a problem with lying too and lying was sin
I was living in sin, living and doing things I wanted to do
Living and seeing what I wanted to see
But one day Jesus touched my life
And when Jesus came in, the liquor went out, the drugs went out
My old lady, the lord bleeds
I thank God my sins and judge every
And I have a right to the tree
Doesn't mean jack to me and everyone that knows Jesus and everyone that's been born again
And everyone that's been washed in the blood
You heard the brother singing about the blood
It's stuff about the blood
It's stuff about the blood of Jesus and wash away your sins
And wash your mind and wash your heart and wash your life, oh praise God
I thank God for that opportunity and I just want to let you know
That he loves us and the Bible backs it up
"That God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son
That whoever should believe in him shall not perish but have an everlasting life."

What's the plan when he comes through this door?
What happens? Speak up, Butch, please

Well, he goes on and goes up to the elevator, gets drunk

But, I mean, what does he do?
He comes through this through this door?
Why don't you just tell me?

He comes through this door, goin' around and takes the elevator

What is this, the kitchen or?

No, this is the freight elevator

Do you have lots of people coming through like that?

Well, there's one

Do you have a lot of celebrities coming through?

Well, no holiday
Conventions and things in the back just coming up this way

What do you think about Elvis Presley coming through here?

Oh, it's wonderful

Do you know anything about him?

Yeah, do I know anything about him?

Yeah

I was raised in his home town

Are you gonna be saying something to him or be talking to him?

Well, that's just gonna depend

Are you looking forward to seeing him?

Sure

Why don't you show us where he's coming in?

He's coming through this door here
There's two doors in this entrance
He's coming through this door here
And this is and it
Opens back like this and we have this one
The other door goes back like this

You gotta have the blood of Jesus Christ
The love from
For man he died on that cross
So that we might have a right to the tree of life
I come to tell you this, my beloved
